Annuar Musa sacked as BN sec-gen

PETALING JAYA: Barisan Nasional has sacked its secretary-general Tan Sri Annuar Musa on Tuesday (Jan 5).

The Ketereh Umno division chief and Federal Territories Minister confirmed that he has been sacked by Barisan Nasional chairman and Umno president Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi.

The dismissal of Anuar came as Umno faced an upheaval within as Umno top leaders and division chiefs were divided as to whether the party should continue working with Perikatan Nasional, namely Parti Pribumi Bersatu Malaysia.

Annuar was seen as championing the need for Umno to cooperate with the component parties of the Perikatan government, butting heads against Zahid who had said that Umno needs to go its separate way to ensure it stays as a dominant Malay party.
